    No eggs! But as they say, real life doesn't get to put up a "The End" sign and have everything finish on an upbeat.
    A little while later, the kid came back and said the game he bought didn't work. I grabbed another copy of the game and put it into our system to test it before he took it home. Everything worked fine, so off he went.
    I then tested the copy he returned. It worked fine as well. RED FLAG!
    A half hour goes by, the kid comes back and says this one doesn't work either. I popped it in the 360 and of course it worked fine.
    I told him if he didn't want the game, to just say so. I will allow you to switch it out for something else. (It's not our policy to do that, but if people come back the same day, I'm not going to be a dick about it, and it saves on a lot of This Doesn't Work bullshit.) He didn't want to switch, he wanted cash back. Which we don't do on used products.
    "Well you don't have the game I want, that's why I bought this." (he wanted CoD Black Ops but got Gears 3 instead).
    "I didn't tell you to buy Gears, you chose to. I will give you full credit on a gift card. I get Black Ops in regularly. I will put one aside for you."
    "...ok."
    I thought that would be the end of it.
    NOPE!

    A few hours later a guy walks in and said, "My son was in here earlier and you sold him a game that didn't work, and he said that you were very rude about it."
    I about plotzed.
    "Yes, I was very rude. I was very rude after he tried to bring his bike in here and then started cursing me out when I told him he couldn't. I'm a grown man, I'm not going to put up with a kid telling me fuck this and fuck that."
    "Oh, well, he knows better than that. I've told him he needs to lock up his bike and I promise that he will be reprimanded for acting that way; BUT..."
    He went on and on about how I take advantage of kids and I rip them off. Blah blah blah.
    I told him, "First, I didn't ask your son to walk in here. Second, I didn't force him to buy a game. Third, I tested both the games and they worked fine. I tell you what, if you want to bring his system over here, I will hook it up and test the game on it. If it really doesn't work, not only will I give you back the cost of the game, I will give you $20 out of my pocket for your trouble."
    "I'm not going to unhook his system, you just need to give him back his money."
    "I'm not going to do that."
    "Then you just lost a customer! We will never shop here again."
    "Let's be honest, you wouldn't be shopping here again anyway, and frankly, I don't want customers like you to begin with."
    "I'm going to call the Better Business Bureau and you can bet that word will get around about how you take advantage of little kids!"
    "Have a nice day."

    So yeah, it wasn't the happy ending I thought it would be.
    p.s. I got a copy of Black Ops in about a half hour later.

    This story makes me a little happy, but only if there aren't eggs tomorrow.

    I played the crap out of Excitebike as a kid, but looking back it's kinda crap. Not for those reasons though.

    That's how Excitebike is! It's that Super Intendo game with the bikes. I played it once and i couldn't get across the screen before it overheated.

    "Hey, these are really, really good. I know it. Have a peak and enjoy them. I know I do."
    I really liked that description.

    I notice the same for my retail job.

    Mild Christmas = Women both in heels (no more accursed flip-flops) and titty-showcasing tops. It's like they're all whores. More so.

    I forgot to mention the straw that broke my back that night.
    One of the last customers I had was a woman, and she asked me if I had any used Playstation 3 systems in stock. I told her no, and with a half smile she said, "You suck."
    Normally, that wouldn't bother me. People tell each other they suck all the time. My friends and I say it constantly.
    But for some reason, it stuck with me that night. I didn't just dismiss it as whatever. I actually thought about what the woman just said to me.
    A stranger who has no familiarity with me at all just told me I suck. To finish the sentence we all leave unfinished, I suck cock.
    This cunt told me that because I don't have an item in stock, I must take male genitalia into my mouth and suckle upon it.
    Unbelievable.
    Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.
    I think we'd be much better off if we could live by that sentiment. People waste much too much energy upon being offended. But at the same time, I think people should really consider what they are saying. I'm more offended at the fact that people don't know what they're saying than I am at the meaning of what's being said.

    Moral decay is one of my main topics of interest, so I could type a lot. But, I just can't understand why all these people have to act SO fucking miserable that they just shit all over everyone and everything they come into contact with. I get really sick of looking at so many ugly, wretched faces every day. I am even more baffled while I'm at work, and other people have the shittiest attitudes when they're suppose to be out enjoying their free time.

    I was thinking, I used to work in retail, and not all customers are assholes, just 90% of them. Then I realized, I buy shit from SSJN from time to time, and I am, in fact, an asshole. SSJN is right.
